We invite photographers, designers, artists and creators from all fields which use the language of photography as their tool, to engage in a creative and inspiring 24-hour exploration of various aspects of the “Chaos” theme.

Chaos

“Chaos” represents opportunity, a way of contending with the uncertainty and ambiguity of a time and a world that is constantly changing.

We invite you to embrace the chaos of our times and think of it as an engine for innovative, independent creation, a path to the re-examination of our basic assumptions and an avenue for creating work which embodies flexibility, inventiveness, ingenuity, and personal and professional development.
“If life is naturally disorganized, wouldn’t developing the skills necessary to deal with its unpredictability be more effective than trying to create order?”
(Inbal Arieli, Serial entrepreneur & tech influencer, Author of Chutzpah).

Technical Details

The marathon will launch online on February 16, at 5:00 PM (GMT+2).Over the course of 24 hours, participants will receive 6 secret photography challenges which may be completed at each participant’s own pace.Participants will be able to sign in and view the first challenge as soon as the marathon begins.
Once the submission for one challenge has been uploaded, the next one will appear.
Participants will decide how much time they’d like to allocate to each challenge; however, all six challenges must be completed within 24 hours.
